TWISTER, THREE SCREENS IN THE DESERT BY NOÉ GRENIER

TWISTER, TROIS ÉCRANS DANS LE DÉSERT (TWISTER, THREE SCREENS IN THE DESERT) is a found-footage film based on a 35mm trailer of the American action film TWISTER (Jan de Bont, 1996). It refers to an incident of collective hallucination of a screening that never took place: the May 22, 1996, screening at the Can-View Drive-In in southern Canada, cancelled due to a tornado alert. The spectators who attended that night nevertheless constructed a memory of having watched the film in the middle of a storm. TWISTER, TROIS ÉCRANS DANS LE DÉSERT is a personal and fragmentary reconstruction of a screening that never happened.

Born in 1987 in Alpes-Maritimes, Noé Grenier earned a diploma from the ESBA-MOCO in Montpellier. After three years in Brussels, he joined the Fresnoy National Studio of Contemporary Arts in 2014. In 2021, he joined the Malterie (Lille) as an associated artist for a three-year period as part of the Impulse program. He also collaborates with Gwendal Sartre and Gilles Ribero as part of the trio Catharsis Projection.
